Mizzou Names its Week One QB!!!

Brady Cook, starter of last year’s Armed Forces Bowl, was named QB1 on Tuesday night!

Dancing Mizzou baby (clearly not a baby anymore, but that’s besides the point) is excited, as is the sophomore Cook.

This is a fitting conclusion - at least right now - to the question of who will run the Tigers’ offense when they take the field September 1 against Louisiana Tech.
